High Times Premieres LEDINSKY’S “High Society” Video

Ledinsky’s “High Society” EP, released late last year, was highlighted by the protest anthem “DonaldTrumpMakesMeWannaSmokeCrack.” The track, inspired by the Swedish-born indie singer/songwriter’s increasing desperation regarding the current political climate, proved a global sensation when it dropped.

Ledinsky left his native Sweden a decade ago, making a new home in Los Angeles where he has earned a reputation as a crafty songwriter and visionary producer—fully on display here, in “High Society,” an exclusive premiere on HIGH TIMES. Get off the grid with Ledinsky, and get high.

Ad Council PSA : Love Has No Labels

For years, kiss cams have been a big part of American sports culture. This year, Love Has No Labels puts a twist on the kiss cam by turning it into a symbol for unbiased love. In the stadium, fans cheered for love in all its forms – regardless of race, gender, disability, age or religion.

Love Has No Labels is a movement to open our eyes to unconscious bias. While the vast majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many of us unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what we see – whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. By becoming aware of our own biases, we can work to end bias in ourselves, our families, our friends, and our communities. Rethink bias at www.lovehasnolabels.com.
